What is Hazardous Waste?

The definition of hazardous waste is “waste that poses a risk to human or environmental health.” Hazardous waste can take several physical forms, including solids, liquids, and gases. This waste consists of the following features:

  • Corrosivity 
  • Ignitability
  • Reactivity
  • Toxicity

It is possible to classify waste items as “hazardous” despite these strict requirements, even if they lack the common technical characteristics of hazardous waste. Two examples are soil left over after massive clean-up and used oil. 

Managing Hazardous Waste

Contamination of surface water and groundwater supplies and of hazardous land is regularly caused by improper hazardous-waste storage or disposal. The risks may be especially dangerous for people whose homes have been built near abandoned or old landfills. Currently, the government regulates hazardous-waste management in order to prevent future damage and address present issues.  In the past, hazardous materials have been purposely spilled or abandoned at random sites in a practice known as “midnight dumping,” in addition to accidental spills.

Today, we have a variety of waste disposal strategies that are commonly utilized to properly manage waste:

Source reduction and re-use: Source reduction, also known as waste prevention, is the process of preventing waste from being created in the first place. It entails making changes to the way materials and products are designed, manufactured, purchased, and used in order to reduce waste volume and toxicity. In other words, source reduction entails avoiding waste from occurring.

Recycling: Recycling gives waste a second chance at life. When we recycle, we return an object to its original state as raw material, ready for continued manufacturing and use. Recycling is a popular waste disposal option. Recovery occurs when the majority of waste material is utilised and processed in ways other than being discarded.

Incineration: Organic materials commonly found in waste products can be burned at high temperatures as a waste treatment method. A variety of industries can utilize waste incineration technology for managing hazardous waste, refining leftovers, and treating chemical, pharmaceutical, and hospital waste. By burning waste, waste can be converted into ashes, gas, and heat, which can then be used to create energy.
